Not quite the Cotswolds - but a quaint little village worthy of some your time.
May 2021
Arrowtown is a quaint little village with gold mining history and a bit of cultural heritage thrown into the mix. They have really tried to keep the flavour and preserve the feel of the place - even if tourist slant a bit like Handorf outside Adelaide. Well worth the short drive from Queenstown with interesting shops and historical period buildings. Lovely riverside walk - in dry conditions just behind the main street. Would happily venture back to spend a little more time exploring the town.

Snobbery at one of the shops
Jul 2021 • Family
We received awful customer service at one of the shops called Ogle. If you don't look & dress a "certain" way, the shop keeper won't even acknowledge or greet you. A very disappointing experience, that tarnished our overall visit to Arrowtown. The rest of the village is lovely.

Lovely village with great shopping opportunities

Lovely little village with great shops. Enjoyed visiting in winter, but would love to go back and see what it is like in autumn! Had a nice snack in one of the cafes, bought some souvenirs, and stocked up on road-trip lollies at the Remarkable Sweet Shop!

Quaint

Historic village which can be walked through in around an hour. Some will love the range of shops.

A number of food outlets and there is a playground for the younger folk.

Such a Special Place
May 2021
Quaint, lovely little village, we walked up to the war memorial to get some great views. Always nice to wander down the street, nipping into shops and enjoying the atmosphere. The trees are always magnificent at this time of year. Good bus service from town for only a $2 trip if you have a Bee card. Can get very cold especially down by the river.

Nice little town for exploring. Had a go at gold panning in the river, walked around the Chinese Village. Beautiful scenery with red, orange and gold trees

Dismal day
Apr 2021 • Couples
We were really looking forward to our visit . We were disappointed to find a lot of the businesses closed. It was a Monday and signs seemed to indicate that a lot are closed Monday and Tuesday. Hard for people who travel a long way to find it like this . Those shops that were open would be there for people with a loaded wallet . Expensive shopping .

The first immigrants came to New Zealand and stayed here and made this their home. Very clean village. Lots of shop around the village and food places are awesome. Don’t forget to visit the Remarkable Candy store while you are there.

Lovely place to visit
Feb 2021 • Solo
Arrowtown was one of the highlights of my trip. It’s a quaint little town, around 15mins away from Queenstown.
Nice shops to stroll around including the fabulous Remarkables sweet shop!
The Chinese mining settlement was interesting to walk around. I also took a walk up the river to a LOTR filming location.
I would def recommend visiting Arrowtown.

Nice to browse

Small town vibe with quaint shop fronts. Pricey but pleasant for browsing if you’re looking for gifts or a treat for yourself.
